The Saturday Museum

In the spirit of #flowcellular we thought we would share with you a little bit about how TSM approached this project in the form of a recipe.

2 artists, 2 kitchens/studios, 2 cities…

Whatever is to hand
Stamps and envelopes

Screens, telephones, bowls, wooden spoons and cutters

Find a bowl and research it. Where does it come from? What’s its history? What might we make in it? Pour in
the people and stir, gently starting creative conversations using what is at hand. Mix messily, play, experiment, listen, remain curious and ask questions. We don’t yet know what we are cooking. Document, photograph and make GIFs of the process, share them. Roll, edit out the sticky parts and cut into squares and rectangles. Bake and share with collaborators, friends and strangers. Thank you to everyone we have collaborated with on this project.

“It has been an extraordinary experience for George and I to collaborate from our kitchens in Athens and London with such a wonderful group of people, most of whom have never met each other in person. I have been amazed by everyone’s warmth, humanity, commitment, creativity and especially for their capacity to play and experiment with the metaphor of food. We had a lot of fun, made a lot of mess and succeeded in generating more questions than we had when we started. It’s been a Zoom adventure, we hope this recipe book will live on to get stained, amended and inspire many more rich conversations.”
